Amitabh Bachchan, Ayushmann Khurrana to star in Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo

Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming film, Gulabo Sitabo, will star Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana. Written by Shoojit's frequent collaborator, Juhi Chaturvedi (Vicky Donor, Piku, October), the film is a quirky family comedy set in Lucknow. The title refers to a colloquial metaphor used by locals.

About the origin of the project, Shoojit says, “Me and Juhi have been working on this script for quite some time. As we all know, when Juhi comes up with a story, it has her trademark quirk in it. As soon as I read it I was extremely excited and shared it with Ronnie (Lahiri), my dear friend and producer, and to both Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann at the same time.” 

The filmmaker goes on to add, “I thought it would take some time to develop and proceed, but everyone, including the duo, were so enthusiastic to do this script, that they figured their dates and here we are, planning to release it this year! After Piku and Vicky Donor, I had been wanting to work with Mr Bachchan and Ayushmann on an equally quirky script so this fell perfectly in place.”

Gulabo Sitabo is produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, under the Rising Sun Films banner. The film is scheduled for release in November. Meanwhile, Shoojit Sircar started shooting for his Udham Singh biopic, starring Vicky Kaushal, in London last month.
